Recycling Lives Transport Department purchases hefty new wagon

Recycling Lives has just purchased a new roll-on roll-off wagon and drag, both of which have been painted and branded by the company’s skip and vehicle maintenance team.

On the first of November, the Hino 700 Series wagon will celebrate its first month out and about on the roads with driver Mick Woods.

Recycling Lives’ Transport Manager, Damien Snape, commented:

“At over eighteen metres in length, the new wagon is the next step on our journey to taking on bigger and more widely spread contracts. As Recycling Lives’ recycling, metal and waste management contracts increase, the Transport Department is working hard to keep up.

“We’re prioritising staff training, powerful branding and, as this new purchase goes to show, the acquisition of larger vehicles that can carry a much larger load. This will help us to minimise unnecessary travel, easing both road congestion and traffic emissions.”

As part of the new drive on branding, the new wagon and drag have been painted in the distinctive lime green of the Recycling Lives logo and decorated with information about the company’s charity work, as well as the insignia for the company’s proudly won Queen’s Award.

With Recycling Lives’ fleet of smartly painted vehicles already a common sight as they make their way to and from the company’s sites in Preston, the hope is that the new wagon and drag will attract even more attention – and business – by demonstrating the company’s ongoing success!
